I have been playing with PHP. I have also been fretting madly about my cat. I also spent $20 on photocopying (a lot of) D&D 3rd Edition character sheets, immersing myself in a massive high-school flashback. High-school was an awfully long time ago.
Grope the Mega.
Goddamn, I miss my old gaming gang. I also miss my cat. The latter, however, will hopefully be resolved tomorrow.
Then I get to work from home for a couple of days whilst I make sure he's okay. It's nice working for good people.
When I'm not playing with PHP, I seem to be playing with MySQL a lot. When I'm not playing with either of those, I tend to end up playing that bloody hyper addictive video game. Whatever you do, don't let Bast get pissed off.
My god, that works on so many levels.
For the record, I like PHP and MySQL. I've not quite advanced to the point where I'm terribly good at either, but I'm capable of hacking together enough web-gunk to build a passable site of sorts. Not bad for a week's erratic work, really. If inspiration strikes, I'll actually build actual things for actual websites. Wouldn't that be groovy.
I just ate a tunafish sandwich. I am now officially sick of tunafish sandwiches. Time to find a new default foodstuff.
"This dwelling cannot evolve because it does not have access to a second type of food."
At least they put a park around the corner.
Over the weekend I blew away everything on my laptop, repartitioned/reformatted, and reinstalled RH6.2 and Helix-GNOME 1.2. I'm really quite pleased. Of course, now I keep running into random crap like the fact I no longer have the Flash plugin installed for Netscape. Well foo. I also blew away my carefully-constructed mail filters. Not quite sure how I feel about that -- if nothing else, it's inspiring me to ditch another batch of random mailing lists that I feel compelled to be subscribed to, but which I never actually read.
My first 3rd edition D&D character creation (for purposes of trying to figure out the new rules) has turned out to be an Elvish Rogue (read: Thief). She's short and kinda wimpy, but dexterous as all git out. I had forgotten just how long it can take to create a new character. Right now I'm finishing up buying her gear. Then it's down to figuring out if I've got all the stats in all the right spaces and working up a nice character history. I think she'll be a city-bred orphan waif with a chip on her shoulder and an unhealthy love for the art of her craft, with an atypically strong religious bent (for a thief, at least).
Part of my PHP puttering is working towards building a weblog for myself so I can stop blithering about random stuff here. Maybe tomorrow.
Now that I think about it, I think my thief will have a pet rat named "Nimmet".
